Sabah – Sepilok

Sepiloks rehabilitation center for orangutangs is located outside Sandakan. This is one of the largest sights in Sabah. In this center they take care of hurted orangutangs and apes that have been captured as pets by the locals.
The orangutangs are trained to take care of themselves and are later released to the jungle life. Two times every day the orangutangs are fed at a platform. The more they learn to adapt themselves to the wild life the more food they can get by themselves, and then they don’t need to come to the platform.
When we were there we saw about ten orangutangs and they were all amazing.
It was a great experience to come that close to them.
